Hi Andriy, I finally got in.  At first I tried single user mode but had no editing permissions.  Then I noticed that I had only thr root slice mounted.  So I found out how to mount the rest of the file system(mount -a) and did that.  Then I used the logon command to logon as root.  Then I made the necessary changes.
